Brush or Floss ?

This is the most common question patients asks :  “Which should I do first, brush or floss?”

The series does not matter as long as you do a thorough job. Brushing and flossing is the best way to remove decay-causing dental plaque from your teeth and help maintain maximum dental health.

Choose a tooth brush that feels comfortable in your hand and in orally area, and use it twice a day. Place your tooth brush at a 45-degree position against the gum area. Move the brush back and forth carefully in short (tooth-wide) swings brushing the external teeth areas, the inner teeth areas, and the eating areas of the teeth as well as the inside areas of the front teeth.

While teeth brushing eliminates dental plaque from teeth areas, it can’t do the entire job of eliminating dental plaque. Washing between the teeth daily with get flossing eliminates waste from between the teeth where your tooth sweep cannot reach. People who have difficulty managing dental get flossing may prefer to use another kind of interdental cleaner. These aids include special styling brushes, choices or stays. If you use interdental cleaning solutions, ask your dental professional about how to use them properly to avoid hurting your gum area.

How do you know if you’re doing a thorough job? Your dental professional may recommend using dental plaque exposing pills available over-the-counter at drug stores and other stores that sell dental cleanliness products. Plaque exposing pills are chewed after you fresh orally area. Red dye will dirt dental plaque that has not been removed, showing you spots that need additional cleaning.
